Join our LIVE (i.e. synchronous) four-hour workshop to discover and practice remote simultaneous interpreting (RSI). Overcome the technical hurdles to interpret effectively.
In the age of COVID-19, do you want to perform simultaneous interpreting online? Remote simultaneous interpreting (RSI) is a relatively new solution to provide video remote interpreting (VRI) in simultaneous mode. To perform it well, you’ll need special interpreting skills and technical expertise.
Increase your job prospects. Cross-Cultural Communications and Seven Sisters Interpreter Training & Consulting are delighted to bring you a new workshop. The RSI Interpreter focuses on developing your ability to deliver RSI in many settings. Join master interpreter trainers Laura Holcomb and Liz Essary for this four-hour remote simultaneous interpreting (RSI) session. Get ready to step into the virtual booth!
In this course, medical, legal and educational spoken language interpreters who already work in simultaneous mode will learn how to perform RSI professionally. The live, interactive workshop covers these topics:
Following two hands-on practice sessions, you’ll be guided through a group debrief of your experience. You will learn the best ways for you to provide quality RSI.
Please note that this workshop focuses on delivering simultaneous interpreting online. This is not a workshop to learn simultaneous interpreting.
This workshop is designed for spoken language interpreters.
